Go beyond the basic stateless application use case on your Kubernetes clusters with operators. Operators are application-aware controllers that allow you to define day-2 operations for your applications with data state.
Consider an etcd-based service - how do you recover from a failed pod? How do you backup/restore data? How do you upgrade from an older version? Operators enable you to programmatically define all this behavior for more consistent operations across all your environments.
I'll detail where operators fit in to your cluster then demo writing an Ansible-based operator - get all this power without touching Go!
